Not many people know that sensitive information is stored within the innards of their computer. Diary entries, corporate secrets, personal secrets. Imagine what would happen if someone gained access and found out that you visited certain adult websites!
Here are some steps should do to remove this information from your computer.
First, you should clean up your internet browsing history. The browsing history contains all of the links you’ve visited and it stores links you’ve visited way back in the past.
The steps on cleaning the browsing history varies from each web browser. For example, in Mozilla Firefox you should go to Tools first. From there a dropdown menu will appear. Choose and click the Clear Recent History button. When you do this, a dialog box will appear where you will be asked the range of time that should be erased from the history cache. You will be given five options, but the best one to choose is ‘Everything’ so that all of the information will be deleted. This includes not only the browsing history but also other things that also contain information about your browsing habits like the cookies and active logins, the cache and even the form and search history. Click on the Clear Now button to automatically begin the process of deleting these files.
Second, you should delete sensitive files from your computer. You should scour your computer for adult site related files and content and delete it. Go to your Download folder (either the default location or a location you’ve manually selected) and delete any adult related content contained inside. Remove the folders that contain these files as well. You should then go to the Recycle Bin and click on Empty Recycle Bin. To make sure that you’ve removed all of the adult files in your PC you should also look at applications like Windows Media Player or Photoshop because they might show the location of adult files in their ‘recent files’ lists.
Finally, you should get a cleaning program that will ensure that all of the adult content in your computer are found and taken care of. These programs are very efficient in cleaning out all traces of information that are stored in your computer – it will delete your browsing history, cookies, your chat history and even pictures and videos that you have lying around all over your hard drive. All you need to do is to run this program and will scour all of your hard drives for this information and all you need to do is to select which files to delete. Remember to delete files related to your internet browsing because that is one area where most adult site information is stored.
